pg_free_result

(PHP 4 >= 4.2.0, PHP 5)

pg_free_resultFree result memory

Description

bool pg_free_result ( resource $result )

pg_free_result() frees the memory and data associated with the specified PostgreSQL query result resource.

This function need only be called if memory consumption during script execution is a problem. Otherwise, all result memory will be automatically freed when the script ends.

Note:

This function used to be called pg_freeresult().

Parameters

result

PostgreSQL query result resource, returned by pg_query(), pg_query_params() or pg_execute() (among others).

Return Values

Returns TRUE on success or FALSE on failure.

Examples

Example #1 pg_free_result() example

<?php
$db 
pg_connect("dbname=users user=me") || die();

$res pg_query($db"SELECT 1 UNION ALL SELECT 2");

$val pg_fetch_result($res10);

echo 
"First field in the second row is: "$val"\n";

pg_free_result($res);
?>

The above example will output:

First field in the second row is: 2

You do NOT need to call pg_free_result() on every result resource you create.
When result resources go out of scope, they are garbage collected just like everything else.
Unless you're hoarding your results somewhere, you can basically ignore this function.

Here's a little test you can run to confirm this: http://pastebin.com/ghw1PHuE
